How is your invasion going?

Discussion in 'UHall' started by eccentricjules, Nov 22, 2008.

  1. I wanted to see if the invasions on the other shards are as broken as they are on Napa. Town Criers say Moonglow, Yew and Trinsic.

    *Brit says it’s blocked, but none of the NPC are infected (been like that since last weekend).
    *Moonglow says it’s blocked, the NPC are infected but there is no spawn and no Crimson (been like that since last weekend).
    *Yew says it’s blocked the NPC are infected but there is no spawn and no Crimson (been like that since last weekend).

    *Trinsic diverts you to a safer location in Jhelom. Last night there was invasion spawn and the NPC are still infected but no Crimson is there. One thing to note... some of the orcs & soldiers spawn INSIDE walls and you can't kill them.

    *Magincia had a Crimson, I think it was Monday or Tuesday... but that’s the last one we had. Everything is so stuck.

    What is the status of your shard? Do Crimson's "time out"? Say one spawns but its late at night, does it come back when the servers come back up? Any ideas about what causes these issues?

    I play Cats. Things go in spurts. I guess things are going as planned by Devs. It is up to Faction members to help/start the tram spawn, right?

    Ok, next question...why would you wait til this late to report a problem? Ya know its a weekend now, right? :coco:
     
  3. Supposidly people have sent in emails. No responses that I know of. I wasn't sure if this was a shard problem or something large scale.

    Find general, lead it off, sick dog on it. Take nap. Wake up 20 minutes later to loot. Thats how it goes for me.
     
  5. No, there is nothing. No monster spawn, no shadow spawn. No orc's, generals, dragons, recruits, elementals, demon, NO NOTHIN.

    Come to siege there are scads heh. Its a terribly boring invasion to fight. I hate monsters that have 458695530 hit points. Its not interesting, its just tedious.

    LA isn't as bad but we do have two cities that seem stuck. Minoc ncp's have been stuck at forsaked for over a week. Stupid people stole my green thorns. We've looked everywhere including inside buildings but no dragon. Brit seems to be stuck at cowardice. Again we've looked but no dragon. Be sure to look inside buildings. They like to hide in them especially the bank at vesper. I've found that one by accident a couple of times.:blushing:
    For the most part though ours seems to be moving pretty well.

    Hmmm...I had a good time last night fighting invading armies on GL in Minoc, Moonglow, and Britain. Earlier in the day, I ran through Yew on GL while it was invaded, helping some folks get to Heartwood to get the Dreadhorn quest. We also spent a long time on Sonoma last night in Vesper, killing stuff. (Sonoma also had invasion mobs in Trinsic and maybe another town as well, can't remember now.)

    Guildmates reported having fun Friday night on Legends, fighting invasion mobs. We had hoped to try Legends again last night, but couldn't find anything. Also checked Origin, Napa, and Pacific but there was nothing to fight except maybe some NPCs. We forgot to check on Baja and Atlantic and no one else in the guild is quite ready yet to do much fighting on Lake Austin.

    About a week ago on one particular day, I believe all eight faction cities on Sonoma were invaded at some time during the day.

    Baja's is up and kicking. During the week it is a bit slower but last night it was one yown after another. We've been having a blast. Maybe your factions aren't as active?

    WOOHOOO!! Come on by Tina!!
     
  19. Trinsic reset itself or something because we finally got a Crimson there and was able to do 2 more cities after that last night. The status of Moonglow and Yew remains the same... stuck. The interesting thing is that the city invaded after Trinsic was Brit. Which was already blocked prior to the invasion. After we killed the spawn and the Crimson the fight moved to Minoc. Brit is still "Something is blocking the location." Even though there is no spawn and no infected NPC. Our freeing the city last night still didn't open it up to teleporting.

    Now we have Skara with infected NPC and no Crimson in sight. Maybe it will reset itself like Trinsic did.

    generally, when that happens to us, Katlene, we start running around and sure enough, wham! I run smack into the belly of the crimson :D

    y'all might want to take a look at this thread
    http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=113721

    after reading this thread on UHall yesterday I got wondering why the invasions seemed to be going so smoothly over on Legends, so I began poking around..... what I found on the factions lists on The Herald pages helped some to explain it, but the comments from one of our faction leaders is what you really want to look at, and maybe consider getting a group together to do for your shard what they are doing for us

    disclaimer! ~ I don't know the first darn thing about factions!

    Umm, Ive been following LA's invasion since the beginning and cant say Im happy with it. Minoc and Brit has been stuck for more than a week now and the last one I went to 2 days ago, SB, there werent any Generals at all. I believe SB is stuck at Hatred cos' the yellow stable NPCs are having the Hatred tag and cant be attacked...
